Non-Emergency Services

Smoke Alarm Installations

The innovation of smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms has had a tremendous impact upon survival rates across the country. Though they are relatively easy to install and maintain, BFD firefighters would be happy to visit your home or workplace to help you understand proper operation, maintenance, and location of these devices.  We would be happy to test them, and even install them for you. Please use our “Contact Us” page and ask for BFD to help you with your detectors.  We’d love to help.

Educational Programs

BFD offers many educational programs that can be conducted at our firehouse or your location.  We aim to provide education to prevent or reduce the severity of emergencies.  Some of the topics we offer include:

Child Seat Installations

The Brighton Fire Department has a certified car seat technician and would be happy to assist residents of our fire district with ensuring that infant / child car seats are installed correctly.

Installations and evaluations are done strictly by appointment only.  Unscheduled walk-ins are not accepted. Fitting stations will be held on a monthly basis. We would welcome your inquiry to be included in our next fitting station event.

Please use our Contact Us page to arrange an appointment. If you can’t wait for our next fitting station event, feel free to go to for other locations and opportunities in Monroe County.


Knox Box

For many years, BFD has partnered with the Knox Company, who manufactures small key vaults that are installed on the exterior of a building. By placing your key within the Knox Box mounted on the outside of your home or business, firefighters and other emergency responders will simply use BFD’s secure Master Key to open the Knox Box to allow us rapid entry in an emergency situation – without wasting precious time or doing extensive damage to your property to gain entrance. 

Here’s how to obtain a KnoxBox compatible with BFD’s Master Key:

  • Visit

  • Choose the style of KnoxBox you would like to purchase

  • Fill out the form, and, please enter requested information to find “Brighton Fire Department”. (Please note, we are not “West Brighton FD”).

  • Complete your purchase

  • Once completed, BFD will receive notification from Knox for our approval. Upon BFD approval, the KnoxBox will be shipped to you for you to install.

  • After you have installed the box, please request BFD to come to your location to place your door keys within it, and lock the box with BFD’s Master Key.

BFD has a coordinator for our Knox Box program who can assist you.  Please use our Contact Us page to learn more.
